一度自身のYellow Electric及びデジタルにてセルフリリース、同年にSuperior ViaductのサブレーベルW.25THより即リイシューされる事となった、Grouper名義にて非常に高い人気を獲得したアメリカの女性コンポーザーLiz Harrisの新変名Nivhekのデビューアルバム。お馴染み残響たっぷりのリヴァーヴボーカルも使われていますが、全体としては彼女自身のプリミティブでシリアスな部分を強調したかの様な程良い実験が魅力のアルバム。メロトロン、ギター、フィールドレコーディング、テープ、壊れたエフェクターによるオブスキュアな音像も飛び出します。





Opaque assemblages of Mellotron, guitar, field recordings, tapes and broken FX pedals by Pacific Northwest artist Liz Harris, created during and after two contrasting residencies in the Azores, Portugal and Murmansk, Russia and combined with pieces made at home in Astoria, Oregon. The collection's unique dual design functions as a forked path, existing independently of one another but with roots intertwined. She cites her score for HYPNOSIS DISPLAY as a compositional reference point, inspired by "interior mnemonic device landscapes" and "curiosity around a sadness."

In pacing, palette and poignancy, these sides rank among Harris' most stark, primordial work: fragile, feverish, ominous and otherworldly. She describes this music as "a requiem, a ritual, to unlock and release feelings," a sense of shadowy masses, moving backwards, in spirals, massive doorways opening chaotic forces, "a toxic concentrated reduction of something much darker bubbling beneath." Her artistry for mapping richly detailed inner worlds is nowhere more expressive and enigmatic, vibrations and voices gliding dimly out of the void, "wraithlike and ethereal, their existence in the mist questionable."

Initially released in a private edition that vanished almost as quickly as it was announced, After its own death / Walking in a spiral towards the house is presented here in a beautiful second edition on Superior Viaduct's imprint W.25TH.
